A mixture of dried, naturally fragrant bigfoot info.
Bigfoot researchers have suggested that an uncatalogued descendant of Gigantopithecus is the source of the Bigfoot phenomenon. Of the existing fossil record, Gigantopithecus is the only candidate fossil that approximates the size of the reported anecdotal observations.
Gigantopithecus is known only by four mandibles and about 1,000 teeth. Three of the four mandibles, known as Gigantopithecus blacki, are 300,000 to 400,000 years and are from the Kwangsi Province of southern China. The fourth mandible is approximately 6.3 million years old. It is smaller than the three Chinese mandibles and is believed to be an older species of the same genus. The Gigantopithecus teeth were discovered in Liucheng, Kwangsi, Wuming, Bama, Daxin, and Jianshi of southern China.
Anthropologists believe Gigantopithecus became extinct mid- Pleistocene, at the latest between 200,000 and 400,000 years ago.

THEODORE MORDE AND THE "LOST CITY OF ANCIENT AMERICA'S MONKEY GOD” In 1939, adventurer Theodore Morde claimed to have found a "City of the Monkey God" but died before returning to the region for further exploration.
"Theodore Morde also related a story about a monkey who had stolen three women with whom it bred, resulting in half-monkey half-human children. He claimed, “The native name for monkey is Urus, which translates literally into ‘sons of the hairy men.’ Their fathers, or fore-fathers, are the Ulaks, half-man and half-spirit, who lived on the ground, walked upright and had the appearance of great hairy ape-men."
THE HUMAN-LIKE "NONDESCRIPT." AN APE-MAN FROM THE EARLY 1800'S English naturalist Edward Bancroft wrote about them in 1769. He mentioned the creature that All the natives called “Wild Man” and it is clear that they were not “Apes.”
These Wild Men were about 5 feet tall, they walked in an upright position and had “…human form. Thinly covered with short black hair.” the Indians “greatly dread them and instantly flee as son a soon as they're discovered.” They share some features with the Trauco hominid found in Patagonia.

We don’t know everything about our early ancestors—but we keep learning more! Paleoanthropologists are constantly in the field, excavating new areas, using groundbreaking technology, and continually filling in some of the gaps about our understanding of human evolution. This is Paranthropus Boisei. Year of Discovery: 1959
Paleoanthropologists actually found the first fossils belonging to P. boisei in 1955, but it wasn’t until Mary Leakey’s 1959 discovery of the ‘Zinj’ skull (OH 5) that scientists knew what they had found was a new species.
There are still unanswered questions about P. boisei that may be answered with future discoveries. Questions like: What, specifically, did P. boisei eat? Probably Tiger Nuts.
